GFBLA was originally created as a marching band to represent the LGBTQ community at pride parades.
Join us as we hit the streets once again and celebrate over 40 years with this historic and dazzling group.
Whether you play an instrument, toss a flag, twirl a baton, or just want to volunteer, there's a place for everyone.
Contact us to learn more! We'll put you in touch with our Marching Band Artistic Director, Leonard Dootson, who will be able to answer any questions you might have.
